And The Charlatans are joined by a Rolling Stone at the Fleadh...
Bob Dylan made a rare outdoor appearance in the UK last night (June 20) as the headliner of the annual FLEADH festival.
The event at London Finsbury Park took a year out in 2003 because no headliner could be found, but this year’s crowds dodged heavy rain to see the star played a selection of his hits, including ‘Highway 61 Revisited’, ‘Maggie’s Farm’ and ‘Like A Rolling Stone‘.
Also on the bill were Counting Crows, Delays and The Charlatans.
The biggest surprise of the day came during The Charlatans set, when they introduced Ronnie Wood to the stage for ’Just Lookin’’ and ’Stay With Me’. He then joined Dylan on stage for his performance.
[/a]’s set ran:
‘Down Along The Cove’
‘It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue‘
‘Lonesome Day Blues’
‘Seeing The Real You At Last’
‘Positively 4th Street’
‘Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum’
‘High Water (For Charley Patton)’
‘Highway 61 Revisited’
‘Not Dark Yet’
‘Honest With Me’
‘Boots Of Spanish Leather’
‘Like A Rolling Stone‘
Later this year [a] is to be honoured by Scotland’s oldest University.
The legend will be awarded an honorary degree from St Andrew’s University at this summer’s graduation ceremony, which takes place on June 23.
The degree will be the second he has received, with the first being from Princeton University, New Jersey in 1970.
